It’s time for a day out in Sydney. There’s lots to see and even more to count. Koalas at the zoo, people on the bridge, surfboards at the beach, boats in the harbour, lanterns in the garden, toys in the shop, gum trees in the mountains and tiles on the Opera House roof. From Bondi to the Blue Mountains, Circular Quay to Centennial Park, the aquarium to the art gallery, there’s so much to explore…
I love a picture book that supports the development of mathematical knowledge and Found in Sydney is a fun and educational counting book that celebrates the wonderful city of Sydney. A local of Sydney or not, most of these iconic places will be instantly recognisable and may even be the spark for a trip to one of Australia’s favourite cities. Delivered in bouncy rhymes and with funky illustrations, children will love joining the two young protagonists as they embark on a fun-filled adventure around tourist hotspots counting the sights as they go.
Landmark adorned endpapers, a map at the back identifying the locations of all the featured places and a ‘Did You Know?’ section offering up some super Sydney facts complete this delightful package that will bring smiles to Sydneysiders and those just visiting.

With huge thanks to Allen & Unwin for the copy I received in exchange for an honest review.
